Today's Gamer Geek: The Socialite

This post is Part I of the series "Today's Gamer Geek". This article delves into what it means to be a gamer in the twenty-first century, namely on our new emphasis on online gaming and connecting with others. Gaming is no longer a means of seclusion by a means of social engagement. (Culture, PS2, PS3, Tech, Xbox, Xbox 360)

The experience of sitting alone and playing through an epic single player game is as classic as it gets, and i believe still defines a lot of gamers. Some of us just don't care for the BS that's found online, and like to control every aspect of our gaming experience through single player. I've started to warm up to Co-op, thanks to Borderlands 2. But MP free single player games are still what draws me to gaming, and always has. I've been gaming for 33 years BTW.
